ME In Books Campaign
"Literature transforms human experience and reflects back to us, and in that reflection we can see our own lives and experiences as part of a larger human experience. Reading, then, becomes a means of self-affirmation, and readers often seek their mirrors in books."
- Author, and Professor Emerita at The Ohio State University, Rudine Sims Bishop
Stories of other people's lives can impact our own by helping us better understand our world. This is why it is important that people of color see their own identities and experiences reflected in literature. Providing People of Color with literature that reflects their identities and experiences helps boost self-esteem, social-emotional functioning, and cultural pride.
The ME In Books campaign is encouraging more reading in commnities of color by providing free books featuring characters of color.
